The British Navy named the goal of the upcoming NATO operation in the Arctic region

48

The British naval forces announced preparations for a NATO operation in the Arctic region. The reports on this matter say that the main purpose of this operation will be "to demonstrate readiness to ensure free navigation in the North."


According to the latest information, several surface ships of the countries of the North Atlantic military bloc will “demonstrate their readiness to ensure freedom of navigation”. Among others, the US Navy destroyer Ross, the Norwegian Navy's Tur Heyerdahl frigate, the British frigate 23 Sutherland, as well as support vessels and a patrol Aviation (Danish Navy).

The British Navy's press center says the operation will be carried out to "increase stability in the region, which is essential to ensure British interests."



From the press service of the British Navy:

The ships will operate in difficult conditions, at freezing temperatures - for the sake of ensuring safety and freedom of navigation.

At the same time, for some reason, Britain did not report on how long navigation in the Far North suddenly became unfree. The only "lack of freedom" for navigation in the Arctic can be provided by ice, but in this case, NATO should have sent icebreakers and not frigates and destroyers to this harsh region ...

    Shaved straight harness! Either they refuse to go outside, since it is below 8 degrees, then they threaten to conduct exercises "in difficult conditions at subzero temperatures." Have they already agreed with Russia so that our icebreakers control the exercise? And then some tub will sink, litter a relatively clean region.

      Yes, the goal is clear to everyone, once again to tease Russia, and take this opportunity to utter a mantra about protecting "holy democracy" from "evil Russians."

      The creation of the Arctic grouping is a competent step by the Supreme Commander, if under Lomonosov Russia grew with Siberia, then today whoever owns the Arctic has secured his future! The Anglo-Saxons understood this, and with a quiet dzap are approaching our northern storerooms.

        Well, let them try - and the flag in their ass ... that is. in your hands!
        Northern shamrocks, ice airfields, icebreakers of the Navy and Bali with Bastions to help.

        Well, we need to put in order the fleet and finally do something with naval aviation what

        They are unlikely to dare to climb into the ice fields ... nothing.
        Although, as you remember about the "British scientists", there are doubts about the adequacy of "British politicians" ..... there are also Danes climbing! In short, a bunch of shabby and other brakes gathered.

Among others, the US Navy destroyer Ross, the Norwegian Navy's Thor Heyerdahl frigate, the British frigate 23 Sutherland, as well as support vessels and patrol aircraft (Danish Navy) will be connected to the maneuvers.

    Something not specified any icebreaker. Exercises in the Arctic without an icebreaker?
    Even the Americans abandoned such exercises in 2018. Reason: If the only heavy icebreaker "Polar Stfr", which is more than 40 years old, fails, Russia will have to ask for help. (Business Insider portal 17.12.2018)

      Well, if you try to use your brain, you can quickly understand that they are not going to climb into the ice.
      And that the tasks and exercise plan do not require this.

        How can you ensure freedom of navigation in the Arctic, without icebreakers ?! Including teachings! If they "learn" only in open water, then why talk about "ensuring free navigation" throughout the Arctic, which is carried out year-round and naturally, in ice-covered zones.
        And for the future, do not make offensive attacks in the "comments". This does no credit to the "colonel" yes hi

          This is a commonplace lie about freedom of navigation. There will be an anti-submarine search operation, they will "light up" a low-frequency emitter, take data on the situation using the GPBA, and then direct the Sea Wolf, which is still there, to the detected targets.

          And for the future, do not make offensive attacks in the "comments". This does no credit to the "colonel"


          Sorry if that.
          But you don't need to write nonsense either.
          It was possible to compare the composition of their group with the stated goals and conclude that it is not difficult.
          Especially if you remember that there is also "SeaWolfe"

    A week later in the news after Nata's exercises - the naval exercises were transferred to the category of rescue, the crew of the Russian Iceberg was awarded orders and medals.

    The ships will operate in difficult conditions, at freezing temperatures - for the sake of ensuring safety and freedom of navigation.

    That's where their NOT freedom and NOT security - in the number 105 it is.

      That is why Trump wants to occupy Greenland, with his 40 and Greenland 65, the United States will receive its 105, like Russia. But the greed of the Anglo-Saxons has no limit, so they also want to tear off a piece from Russia. Stability ends where the pirate fleet appears.

      Here is the statement of boors who count all people. Throughout the entire time when a person began to work in the Arctic seas, there was no need for this "security", with the exception of WWII, when "wolf packs" and raiders of Hitler's Germany sank all ships, regardless of flags. And this is where these Anglo-Saxon "providers" of the United States and Britain were at that time, having a fleet many times larger than the fleet of the Third Reich. After 1945, the Arctic waters were the safest in the world, and suddenly "peacekeepers" arrived in the area. But history shows where the British and US gunboats arrive, where the WAR begins.

    I immediately remembered the incident at the Invasion festival, which took place several years ago. It rained heavily and the parking lot turned into a swamp. The cars got stuck. And right there were local tractor drivers nearby. 5 tons and your car on the asphalt! Some say they pulled out 30 cars or more in a day ..

    The Arctic was the quietest region in the world until the Anglo-Saxons stuck their noses there. Where can there be peace of mind when warships are cruising the waters of the ocean instead of fishing and commercial vessels?

    Well, you can call it whatever you like, in fact it is the development of the theater and the conduct of intelligence. At the end of the eighties, all our sworn friends (English, French, etc.) constantly sent similar groups to the Barents Sea. Typically, such a group consisted of a destroyer-frigate class ship and a supply ship (or tanker). The supply ships carried radio and electronic reconnaissance equipment and from one to four anti-submarine helicopters on board.

    Well, NATO is not so hot with icebreakers. The Saxons will cut openings in the ice for their ships, so that their pelvis can pass. If it doesn't work out, let the Americans be asked to show how it's done. The Americans have experience in cutting their submarines out of ice.
